A contrasting collar is made up of two pieces meeting in the center front. The dress closes in the back with an invisible zipper. A sweet little bow hand sewn onto center front completes the look!

I finished my Petals-n-Pleats dress and love it! I usually stick with easy patterns and this was a bit above my skill level, but I liked the look of it, and really wanted to sew it! The directions and illustrations got me through it. Nice pattern. The dress is so cute, and looks professionally made!
I had the honor of testing this great dress pattern for Rebecca. The directions were very clear, and the dress went together beautifully. I was impressed with how precise the pattern pieces were, and loved the method used to place the yoke on the main part of the dress. The fit was perfect. GREAT pattern!!!
I found sewing this sweet little dress was easier than I thought it would be. I like how the front of the dress is cut; it made folding for the pleats really fast and accurate. I would definitely made this again!
